Baba Vanga’s followers often refer to the mysterious woman as the Balkan Nostradamus due to her supposed prophetic powers. Baba Vanga rose to prominence in the year 2000 when she supposedly predicted the sinking of the Russian submarine Kursk.
On top of her supposed powers of foresight, Baba Vanga’s supporters believe the blind woman who lived in the village of Rupite, Bulgaria, had the power to communicate with the dead.
So what exactly did Baba Vanga have to say about the year 2020 before her death in 1996?

The bad news is Baba Vanga did not specify how the world would come to an end or what will lead to the end times.
However, Mr Hamilton-Parker has told Epxress.co.uk 2020 promises to be a turbulent year with a war in the Middle East, natural disasters and political unrest.

Mr Hamilton-Parker did, however, predict trouble for China’s President Xi Jinping in the aftermath of the Hong Kong riots.
He said: “I predicted the Hong Kong riots some time ago. I also spoke of a revolution in China.
“2020 will see further clashed in Hong Kong with new riots in the Chinese mainland.
“Faced with the overthrow of government Xi Jinping will agree to sweeping changes.”

Did Baba Vanga predict a cataclysmic tsunami for 2020?
Based on Baba Vanga’s prophecies of the future, a powerful tsunami could strike Asia 16 years after the tragedy of the 2004 tsunami.
The 2004 cataclysm killed more than 220,000 people in SouthEast Asia.
If the blind mystic is proven correct next year, another disastrous wave will sweep through parts of Pakistan, Japan, China, Indonesia.
According to Mr Hamilton-Parker, 2020 will see many environmental disasters unfold all across the world.
He said: “2020 will see many earthquakes. In particular, Japan and India will see major quakes that may cause disruption to the Summer Olympics.
“The USA will also experience earthquakes. Serious volcanic activity on a small island – I cannot identify where. Urgent evacuation.”
Will any of Baba Vanga’s predictions come true?
According to website Skeptics.com, Baba Vanga’s prophecies and predictions are pure fiction and nothing more.
The website wrote: “Vanga was illiterate or semi-literate, and she apparently did not write any books herself, with staff members financed by the Bulgarian government capturing what she allegedly said.
Those of Vanga’s predictions quoted seem to all be apocalyptic visions of the future of the world – particularly Europe – and even Mars, where a war will break out in 3005 and change the trajectory of the planet.
“On a more positive note, she predicted that in 2028 mankind will fly to Venus to search for new sources of energy – she must not have seen the toxic and corrosive atmosphere of the planet – and that by 2130 civilisations will live underwater with the help of aliens”
